perhaps you can enlighten us as to why he's wrong, and what the linux kernel has to do to better support desktop environments?
One of the benefits about the teams I work with is just that, we're TEAMS.
So if I'm working on my part of the project, and something breaks from the other teams and the error is non-obvious, a bug report is filed saying not only how the error was generated, but that the error message itself is not clear to me and needs to be fixed.
QA has also been trained just enough to know when an error message doesn't make much.
I have an ipad. Full file system access is my number one reason for jail breaking. I can access any file on the device, share folders on a samba server, access any file on the sdcard reader.
Now I can actually upload nef files from.my Nikon camera.
by whom? the company or the employees?
I was kind of keen on visiting Japan during the fall months. I have no idea how this impacts my decision.

...in the mobile world. All they will do send a lot of people towards Apple and they will accomplish nothing.
yes, it was the 290, not 250, sorry.
They were competing against each other, the amd card had slighter better bang for the buck but was reportedly quite hot and some boards were quite noisy.
don't underestimate the beauty of a quiet powerful computer.
I won't buy a $3000 gpu anymore than I'll buy a $1500 one, but I did buy the GTX 780 over the cheaper but somewhat more powerful R9 250 solely on the basis of it being cooler.
humans do have a strong tendency towards anthropomorphism
> You're talking about Python, right? It may be a lot of things, but consistent isn't one of them.
Python's inconsistencies are bizarre enough that they become easy to remember, and there aren't that many. PHP's inconsistencies are much more subtle, and are everywhere. Peruse the string functions for a good example...
> Again, Python? Also, I wasn't aware that PHP was "difficult to scale". No one else seems to have trouble with it. Well, "double-digit percentage of total internet traffic" sites excepted, of course. Though at that point, just about everything is "difficult to scale".
for web apps I'd assume python and PHP have the exact same problems, and more or less the exact same solutions. PHP is going to be slower if you use mod_php over php-fpm though, which many don't do. As well, it's a lot easier to write up performance-dependent code in C when using python than when using PHP.
> I've never seen a "web framework" I'd classify as "good", let alone "excellent".
You should elaborate on this. Are these just frameworks for PHP and Python or are you being language agnostic with this statement? I've grown comfortable limiting my webapps to just RESTful APIs that frontends use and whipping up those APIs are painless in almost any language that has something similar to JAX-RS/Flask/etc
> A language known for abysmal performance
False, an implementation known for abysmal performance, which is CPython.
Sounds to me like someone is interested in preserving their job at the FCC rather than anything as altruistic or abstract as 'protecting the public's interests'.
does this detail really matter? Greed and survival instincts are no different than any other exploitable human attribute.
not to mention the fact that a lot of this research was paid for by the tax payer. This is knowledge that Canadian citizens have a right to access
On windows, your default player is Windows Media Player. It is cumbersome to use, doesn't support a wide array of formats, and it's full of content advertisement. So I install Foobar and VLC for a better experience. Or I can use XMplay for music if I want a media player that has style. My current XMplay install looks just like the old classic Winamp which is awesome.
On Gnome, your default player is Rhythmbox. Its shoutcast support, just sucks. It's never clear if its buffering, or timing out, or what. I hate it. I have not found a suitable alternative yet, but haven't tried very hard either.
On KDE, your default player is Amarok. I don't really know it well as I've only recently moved all my linux desktops onto KDE so can't comment.
Just from memory:
Montreal Metro is driven by autopiloting with someone in the cab for door management.
Vancouver Skyline doesn't even have a driver anywhere, it's all automated.
Several airports (Orlando was the last one I went to), have automated trains/monorails to shuffle people between terminals.
Most flights you take are done almost entirely on autopilot.
So far, it seems that mass transit is increasingly automated. So why is non-mass transit any different?
